Masterpieces from Mount Stuart will be show in a spring exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh, including works by Dutch and Flemish masters such as Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch and Jacob Jordaens.
The exhibition will run on The Mound from May 19 to December 2 and feature 19 works from Mount Stuart, the Victorian Gothic mansion on the Isle of Bute in the Firth of Clyde, built by the 3rd Marquess of Bute and home to one of the greatest collections of Old Master pictures in the UK.
Among the highlights will be two rural landscapes by Aelbert Cuyp, an artist enormously popular with British collectors in the 18th century.
Since its opening to the public in 1995, Mount Stuart has been a major visitor attraction in the west of Scotland. This exhibition has been realised in collaboration and with the support of the 7th Marquess of Bute and Mount Stuart Trust.
